Carroll County Snapshots

November 23, 2005

Mandy Hill, Francis Scott Key



STATS -- The 6-foot-1 senior ranked second among county players this season by averaging 3.8 kills per game, and tied for the county lead in blocks with 1.2. A powerful hitter, several of Hill's spikes have sent opposing defenders tumbling to the floor.

SIDELINES -- Hill improved her all-around game, particularly her defense, and for the first time in her career was allowed to remain on the court when the rotation took her to the back row. A leader on and off the court, she served as the team's captain and excelled in the classroom, where her grade point average is nearly as flawless as her swing. She shares a special bond with Eagles coach Stephanie Brooks, as well. The two grew up as neighbors and their fathers played softball together.
